bartsch paris hand-painted walls

Something’s in the water because my mind is really starting to open to murals. I used to avoid them like the plague, and now they’re seeming like a really good idea. These gorgeous examples are from Victoria at Bartsch, a Paris-based decorative painting workshop that specializes in children’s rooms. I’d happily use some of these in my home (maybe in small places where the pattern would do all the heavy lifting, design-wise), but even if they’re just for kids, I’ll still admire them online. You can check out more examples of their work online right here. Those circles/moons look so pretty from afar — like sparkly gold dots. xo, grace

    I love the navy crescent moons. Anyone would feel soothed as they dozed off looking in that direction…. zzzzzzz

  2. These are really pretty! So delicate yet impactful.

  3. Melissa says:

    Whoa I totally thought the first one was a mobile with little yellow circles of paper hanging down… amazing!

  4. i don’t care if they are supposed to be for children, i would gladly adorn my walls with these beautiful murals. especially the first one, it reminds me a bit of goodnight moon (aka the greatest children’s book of all time). dreamy and beautiful.

    Wow, the moons are so beautiful. I’m with the other commenters–definitely not just for children!

  6. I’m not much of a mural fan either but those looks fab!

  7. Pretty… I like the gentle, feminine dots. :)

    These are perfect. It makes me want to attempt to handpaint one of my own.

  9. These are spectacular. I love the moons on the dark blue background…
